Chin and cheek implants are facial implants which may be used to improve facial balance and harmony, enhance facial highlights, add definition to the face or correct natural insufficiencies. The surgery can create more prominent cheek bones and a better defined chin.

THE CHIN & CHEEK PROCEDURE

Dr. O’Mara performs chin and cheek augmentation procedures at an outpatient surgery center using either IV sedation or general anesthesia. Chin implant procedures typically take thirty minutes to complete while cheek augmentation takes approximately one hour. For cheek augmentation, the incisions are typically intraoral, located inside of the mouth below the cheek. For chin augmentation, a small skin incision is made just beneath the chin. Working through these incisions, Dr. O’Mara will create precise pockets over the mandible and/or cheekbones, then place the implants into these pockets.

 

CHIN & CHEEK IMPLANTS

Dr. O’Mara prefers to use silastic implants which are placed adjacent to the mandible or cheekbone to enhance a weak chin or cheek. This is an ideal procedure for individuals who are looking to improve a flat appearance to the cheeks or a small chin. While facial implant procedures may be performed as an isolated surgery, chin augmentation is often combined with other procedures such as a lower facelift or rhinoplasty.
